From April 22 to July 31, 2022, “Imagine: Reflections on Peace,” a multimedia exhibit by The VII Foundation that explores the themes and challenges of peacebuilding through an immersive look at societies that suffered — and survived — violent conflict, will be on view at the National Museum in Sarajevo

Using historical photos, texts, video profiles and interactive opportunities, the Imagine exhibit brings visitors face-to-face with the realities of violent conflict and asks the question: “Why is it so difficult to make a good peace when it is so easy to imagine?”
